“Schafe unter Strom” is a collaborative nature conservation project by Landschaftspflegeverband Westsachsen e.V., 50 Hertz, Mitnetz Storm, TU Dresden and many more in the West Saxony region. The initiative teams up with local shepherds and opens up new pastures under the high-voltage routes. The initiative brings together nature conservation activists, grid operators, academic institutions, land farmers (e.g. Shepherds) and marketers together to create a continuous network of habitats for rich species near power grids.
